stopped buying our debt? what happens to interest rates? what happens to the u.s. economy? in the markets will absolutely devastate us if we do not step up to this problem. the problem is real, the solutions are painful, and we have to act. >> alan, do you want to add to that? >> i would just a -- i know it is repetitive, if you can understand hear what the people of america as we travel around and we do stuff. we go to the business council, we go to the conservative group in dallas, the economic club of new york, and wherever we go, people get it. then we tell them that if they just go to the internet and to go www.fiscalcommision.gov, it is 67 pages. if we leave that out they will never read it. it was not written for patents or politicians or panderers, it was written for the american people. it uses terms like "groing broke" and "shared sacrifice." there has never been any sacrifice required of the american people since world war ii except for our military, and god bless them, and they chose to do it. they are volunteers. so when somebody says, you cannot use that word. well, the amer

in libya at the white house, to go over diplomatic options for the u.s. as martha raddatz reports, there's a limited list of options. >> reporter: president obama sounded clear enough -- >> the violence must stop. moammar gadhafi has lost legitimacy to lead and he must leave. >> reporter: but that looks less and less likely. what if gadhafi wins his battle with the rebels? you could see a blood bath with the libyan leader seeking revenge against the thousands who are opposing him. what is the u.s. willing to do to stop him? none of the options are appealing. setting up a no-fly zone to stop gadhafi's fighter jets. that would require hundreds of warplanes and take months to get going. sending in ground forces. no way the u.s. is committing to that. and what about arming the rebels? almost impossible since officials say they aren't certain who the rebels are. and remember, the u.s. helped arm mujahideen fighters in afghanistan in the '80s and some and some of those same armed fighters are terrorists. gadhafi has managed to survive where other dictators have failed because he still has his
intelligence-gatherering. this is the first step to where the u.s. could be doing covertly arming the rebels in their fight against gadhafi. now, u.s. officials caution that they have not done that yet. this is essentially laying the legal groundwork to do that. once you do, it comes under fairly strict congressional oversight, but done in a classified way, carl. >> chuck, what has the white house said about this? what are they legally able to say if they want to deny it? >> reporter: it's a covert operation and is legally deniable. that's number one. the white house is not confirming anything. obviously a few weeks ago when this crisis began they did announce that the full capabilities of the u.s. intelligence community would be used. now, at the time the implication was this was about the over the air surveillance, things like that in order to try to track gadhafi's movements. it was also at that time that the cia operatives were going into the country to begin gathering intelligence about the operation and gadhafi. one other thing, carl, the u.s. intelligence community is very optimistic
at 12:18 pm we are waiting for this big earthquake, resulting in a tsunami, to hit u.s. shores momentarily. we will keep you posted. we have about 10 minutes left with congressmen kevin yoder. henry is a democrat. you are on the air. caller: kevin, i would like for you, if you are really serious about doing something about the budget, first of all, i would like you to take some leadership and introduce a bill that would, of course, cut or make sure that congress pays for more of their medical, make sure the congress takes a pay cut, introduce a bill that will cut subsidies to all states for every dollar that each state sends to the federal government. they should get a dollar back. there are no states that should have any kind of an advantage over another state. the republicans do not like government. then cut all of your government contracts. do not accept any more than your state sends in federal dollars. go to the 400 richest people who have more than 155 million people in this country in wealth and ask them to pay their fair share of the taxes. if you are not just trying to

[ speaking in a foreign language ] >> reporter: we want an air space embargo to keep gadhafi from bringing in mercenaries from africa. we'll do the rest. ratcheting up pressure on gadhafi, secretary of state clinton said a no-fly zone is on the table. >> the people of libya made themselves clear. it is time for gadhafi to go. now without further violence or delay. >> reporter: gadhafi is not listening. civil war seems imminent and the exodus of thousands of refugees along libya's borders every day will likely only grow. still, it doesn't have to be bloody. libya experts say if several of gadhafi's inner circle decide tole bolt the game is over. so far, meredith, that hasn't happened. back to you. >> jim maceda, thank you very much. susan wright is the ambassador to the united nations. >> good morning, meredith. >> you have called gadhafi delusional and dis
senator, dan coates diverred his first speech to the senate floor talking about the u.s. economy and budget cuts. this is 25 minutes. >> mr. president, returning to the senate is like in many ways having a chance to relive a part of your life, and yet doing so with a benefit of experience, the experience i gained in serving in this body before and also service from the private sector, and it allows you to see things differently than you saw them before, and while i've discussed with my colleagues what is the same here in the senate on return, there's also much that has changed in our country and that i think will mandate change in this institution. it's what has changed that has brought me back to the senate because the more that i witnessed what happens to our country, the more i realized, i, like many others across the country, need to reengage in the country and return to the time-tested principle, not to the least of which is returning our federal government to one that ensures a healthy, fiscal nation whose finances and policies promote job opportunities for its citizens. i
